Obviously, I'm quite happy. People don't understand that NFL teams aren't going to go "anywhere" to hold training camp. There are some very specific criteria that need to be met in terms of field quality, facility quality, etc. People assume, too, that holding training camp at Wofford is a given because Mr. Richardson is an alumnus and great supporter. It's simply not true. If we didn't have the appropriate facilities and the kind of services they need, we wouldn't be the host.

 

One of the major considerations for the team, too, is that being a two-state team, holding training camp in South Carolina is important since the games are played in North Carolina.

 

Still, with the trend of teams staying at home for training camp - for financial and other reasons - there was always the possibility the Panthers would decide to do that as well. We are pleased they didn't and have made a multi-year commitment to Wofford. It means a lot to the college as well as the community.

 

As for those who don't like Spartanburg, maybe you haven't explored here much or haven't recently. We have lots to offer, and I'm happy to provide information on places to stay, places to eat and drink, etc. It's been a while, but I used to write up a good "guide to Spartanburg" for those attending camp. Maybe I'll revive that when we get closer to July.

 

And, as Jeremy said, training camp in Spartanburg is an extremely fan-friendly experience. The Panthers are committed to that wholeheartedly. Y'all come and find out for yourselves.

Whats not to love?  Top 25 most violent city in America.  

 

Those rankings have been questioned since they came out, and still are being questioned and disputed.

I think that's what I'll do. Thanks!!!

 

I wonder if I can get them to make a DVD? They gave me a disc of my MRI, I don't know what I'm looking at, but it's cool looking!

 

I have a VHS tape of my first arthroscopic surgery (20 years ago). It is weird and fascinating. Getting ready for total knee replacement Monday ... after a second arthroscopic (unrelated to the first injury) last year. I'm a little stressed about this surgery.
